Winemaker Notes

Seavey’s 17th vintage of Caravina the 2015 is lusciously deep and soft. It opens with notes of raspberry, tart cherry, ganache, cedar and a hint of smokiness, and continues in the mouth with wonderfully bright strawberry and raspberry jam flavors. The wine has significant texture and grip that carry through to the end of the finish. Dynamic and spirited, this wine is wonderfully accessible now but its lively, open energy reveals a layered experience that will surely evolve with time.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 92
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Caravina packs a serious punch. Once again a real overachiever, the Caravina offers notable density and pure power in its dark plum, chocolate, lavender and leather flavors. The 2015 is going to need at least a few years to shed some of its baby fat, after which it should drink beautifully for a number of years. This is a very serious second wine from Seavey. At many Napa Valley properties, this would be the top wine.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Caravina is deep purple-black in color with a nose of cassis, licorice, blue fruits and red currants with touches of bay leaves and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied with a firm, grainy texture, it has great fruit expression and a nice herbal lift on the finish.
JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck
The entry-level Cabernet is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Caravina which comes from individual lots from Seavey’s hillside blocks that are harvested and vinified separately. Made from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 55% new French oak, it gives up outstanding notes of currants and black raspberry fruit intermixed with hints of crushed violets and licorice. With medium to full-bodied richness, fine tannin and impeccable balance, it will keep for 10-12 years (or more).

Seavey Vineyard, California
Seavey Vineyard Winery Image
In the 1870s – when Conn Valley Road was little more than a wagon trail – the land which we now farm was planted with grapes to make a “Claret of high repute.” This wine was judged by the St. Helena Star to be “as fine as one might find anywhere.” Commonly known as the Franco-Swiss Farming Company, this was the pioneering vineyard and winemaking operation of Conn Valley. After roughly thirty years of producing great wines, the company dissolved due to the impact of a phylloxera infestation and Prohibition. For more than a half century, cattle roamed the land and grain was farmed but no more grapes were cultivated until Bill and Mary Seavey acquired the land in 1979. Bill and Mary set out to revive the original vineyard, planting the south-facing hillsides of Conn Valley near Lake Hennessey. By 1990, we had remodeled an 1881 stone dairy barn into a small winery and began producing small quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Small blocks of Merlot and Petit Verdot were also added along with a second winery building which includes an underground wine cave.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
